Acid


#1

hi

i've been having a bit of bother recently with pills not working. i found this rarely-cited article.

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/14999414_Gastric_acid_secretion_and_absorption_of_levodopa_in_patients_with_Parkinson's_disease_-_The_effect_of_supplement_therapy_to_gastric_acid

i have found that drinking acidic lemon drinks helps with the rapid absorbtion of levadopa. it also helps with motility! 

i believe that some, not all, pwp have low gastric acid levels. if you are one of these,this might help.

ps have purchased some irlen blue spectacles.

they should arrive in 2 weeks. also going to sydney for pre-dbs tests.
